Virtual Activities to Do This Week in Washington DC

With many of the major destinations in Washington, DC, closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you might be wondering what to do this week in you’re in the nation’s capital. Now is the time when many businesses have shut their doors and people have been urged to only go out for the necessities, but that doesn’t mean there still aren’t great ways to connect around the city.

At DC Trails, we know staying home is hard, which is why we’ve collected a list of a few things to keep you busy. Here are four great activities to check out online recommended by our Washington, DC, tour guides!

  1. Doodle Hour

Step into the virtual studio every Monday of local artist Mo Willems at 1 p.m. Don’t forget to bring your pens, paper, and other tools you need to doodle as Willems shows you how to draw a variety of different things. This is a great opportunity, hosted by The Kennedy Center, for the whole family to sit down and have some afternoon fun.

  1. Support Your Local Businesses

In this virtual lettering session, you’ll learn how to draw letters showcasing your favorite local businesses, all of which will be collected to create a coloring book.

  1. Virtual Wine Tastings

Celebrate Wednesday with an elegant wine tasting. Each week at 6:30 p.m., from now until the end of the month, District Winery is offering Virtual Wine Tastings, each showcasing their boutique blends and offerings.
